    Depths of Pentecost ^ | May 27, 2017 | Philip Cottraux
    By Philip Cottraux The arena filled with young people as a cloud of anticipation grew thick in the air. A pop star emerged on stage before an adoring crowd. The cheers mingled with acoustics thundered into the night sky. Some were close enough to see their idol, but most could only faintly see her in the distance. Her image played on a giant telescreen, singing to the backdrop of glittery music. Then a terrible explosion shook the ground, and screams of adoration were drowned by shrieks of bloody horror. Pop music concerts are exercises of pure fantasy. A famous young...
  • The Baneful Apocalyptic Triad of USA, Israel and Saudi Arabia

    An analysis on Trump’s recently concluded trip to Saudi Arabia and the ongoing one to Israel. Trump effectively blessed Saudi Arabia as a pillar of moderate Islam as part of his “Muslim reset”. One Arab writer even hailed Saudi-US ties as one that “shaped the wider world” and although the wider world would undeniably agree with that reality, it would nevertheless consign such ties to the very negative end of the global affairs spectrum. The Israeli press celebrated Trump’s royal treatment in Riyadh and observed how the president and select members of his cabinet danced with swords in a ceremony...
  • How Higher Education Became an Obscenely Profitable Racket That Enriches the Few (trunc)

    Student loan lenders are skimming tens of billions in profits guaranteed by the taxpayers. "Legal" rackets have two essential components: a public-relations "cover" that obscures the racket and the mechanism that extracts the wealth from the "marks." The Higher Education Racket qualifies on both counts: 1. The PR cover is "you all need a college diploma, and we're here to make that happen." Yea for more education! 2. The extraction mechanism is student loans. Here's a chart that shows what happened relatively recently: your federal government began guaranteeing obscene profits to student-loan lenders and debt-serfdom for tens of millions of...

    The Hill ^ | 05/02/2017 | BY PAULINA FIROZI
    Top staffers loyal to ousted Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint have stepped down from organization, according to a new report. The Daily Beast reported Tuesday evening that top staffers -- including Executive Vice President Bret Bernhardt, Vice President of Communications Wesley Denton, Vice President of Policy Promotion Ed Corrigan and DeMint’s chief of staff, Camera Seward, have resigned. The Heritage Foundation announced DeMint’s resignation earlier Tuesday, blaming the former leader for "significant and worsening management issues that led to a breakdown of internal communications and cooperation.” DeMint, a former South Carolina senator, took the helm of Heritage in 2013. "Jim...

    Protesters started to gather around Trump hotel this evening, blaring loud dance music and holding LGBT flags. Jack Posobiec was live on the scene asking the protesters what exactly they were protesting. Many said ‘gay rights and climate change’. Posobiec spoke to one protester who said gays are being excluded under the Trump administration and that Mike Pence ‘signed something’ and is putting gay people in jail. Posobiec: “What rights do gay people not have?” Protester: “So under Mike Pence you could go to jail for 18 months…” Posobiec: “Mike Pence has sent gay people to jail?” Protester: “Yes.” Posobiec:...

  • Trump May Send Up To 50,000 Troops To Syria

    It appears that Mike Cernovich, who earlier this week wrote that Trump's national security advisor, Gen. H.R.McMaster, was planning on sending as many as 150,000 troops to Syria, may have been right again. According to Bloomberg commentator Eli Lake, who has now made a habit of confirming Cernovich "conspiracy theories" (he did so previously with the Susan Rice scoop), Trump may be on the verge of escalating the proxy war in Syria by sending anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 troops on the ground, and - if Cernovich is indeed correct - as much as three times more. Per Lake, after...

    The term: “for domestic consumption” is a term generally familiar to political observers who are accustomed to filtering out and separating ‘noise’ from ‘action’ when reviewing remarks made by international leaders outside the U.S. However, in modern U.S. geo-political review it becomes important to apply the same cognitive transparency toward U.S. President Trump as he faces the three-headed swamp guardian, Cerberus.The three heads of the modern Cerberus we identify as: •Deep State (foreign policy adversaries), •Big Club (domestic economic adversaries) and •U.S. Media.All three oppositional entities view the insurgent Presidency of Donald Trump as adversarial to their long-term globalist interests....

    As part of its daily wrap of the Susan Rice newsflow, which focused on her first media appearance since she was "outed" as the persona responsible for "unmasking" members of team Trump, the WSJ provides two new pieces of incremental information: i) in addition to Michael Flynn, at least one more member of the Trump transition team was "unmasked" in intelligence reports due to multiple foreign conversations that weren't related to Russia; and ii) Rice wasn't the administration official who instigated Mr. Flynn’s unmasking, confirming there is at least one more high-level official giving "unmasking" orders.

    New York, New York. So nice they say it twice. But it’s apparently not nice enough anymore for people to want to stick around. The NY Post highlights some recent population figures which indicate that a growing number of Gotham residents (that would be rapidly growing) either don’t want to live there anymore or simply can’t afford to. In either case, there’s a bit of an exodus going on and the Big Apple is losing residents faster than any other major metropolitan area in the country. More people are leaving the New York region than any other major metropolitan...
  • Rosie O’Donnell Tells First Lady to Divorce President Trump

    IWB ^ | Gabrielle Seunagal
    Rosie O’Donnell’s obsession with the President and his family borders on downright psychosis. The quarrel between the two originated a decade ago when O’Donnell made unflattering remarks about Trump’s decision to not fire a Miss Universe contestant. Since then, the two have gone back and forth, but O’Donnell was the obvious aggressor and the one who simply could not let the matter rest. When attacking the President did not have her desired outcome, she resulted to attacking his relatives.

    FBI Director James Comey could do no wrong in his eyes yesterday on Capitol Hill. He was so full of himself and so cocky, I am sure he thought he was bulletproof. But I would say to him, you failed to tell the truth and the full truth; thus, you failed, Director Comey. You did succeed in in damaging the image of Mainstream News Media even worse than it already is. You failed to take the one criminal act we were certain of and investigate the leaking of classified information. We know that DID HAPPEN, but you seemed to care...
  • Is the Turkish President Working Directly With ISIS to Bring TERROR to Europe?

    Turkish President, Recep Erdo?an on Wednesday, said that “If you continue to behave like this, not a single European, not a single Westerner will be able to take a step on the road safely anytime in the world,” to the European Union. This can be spun anyway the media likes, but it is clearly a direct threat if you look at the history between Erdo?an and ISIS. The comments came in response to Germany and Holland both blocking Turkish Ministers from holding rallies to support the Turkish president’s grab for power, which many suggest is the first step to complete...

    If President Trump’s replacement for ObamaCare does not pass, it is my opinion after my research, Americans will regret it. ObamaCare is imploding as we speak There are Americans who have paid for ObamaCare, but the deductibles have been so high they have never actually used it. Others have just paid the penalty, but do not have insurance to show for that money spent. Insurance companies are opting out every day. It is a mess that has damaged so many American lives, it is hard to put into words. President Trump had a meeting with many Americans from around the...

    Remember all the promises Obama made but never executed? We have a new President now, and he is ready to put his pen where his mouth is. Remember what President Trump ran on? Didn’t he say, “I will put AMERICA FIRST.” And that is exactly what he is doing. You can count on Trump to do what he says, even if it is unpopular with the citizens, he knows why his voters chose him. Obama spent 8 years commending terrorists by not acknowledging their works. He opened the United States up to those who wanted to destroy it, by not...

    The American Journal of Political Science published a correction several months back saying that it made a serious error in one of it’s published papers. The error? The paper originally said that conservative political beliefs are linked to “psychoticism,” but it turns out that liberal political beliefs are the ones that are linked to psychoticism.

    President Donald Trump announced conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch as his pick for the US Supreme Court on Tuesday night. The pick was widely cheered by conservative and Republican leaders. But this would not have been possible if the #NeverTrump crowd would have had their way. Last night Sean Hannity went off on the Trump-hating #NeverTrump crowd of Republicans who fought throughout the year to make sure Donald Trump was defeated.
